Students Compete In Academic Contests
The Academic Team is a team of different students placed together to do trivia type contests.
The sponsor of this is Mrs. Lester. The Academic Team consists of 9th through 12th graders. So far, there are only 8 members; but it is always open for sign up and the only requirement is to have a 2.0 GPA. The team competes against people in the county, home state, and even other states. The Academic Team meets are hosted by Crestview High School.
In a competition six members from the team work together to answer trivia questions against another team of six. The questions cover history, math, science, language arts, and even pop culture; specifically, the questions can range from basic health to biology or basic geometry to even trigonometry. The questions can be answered by the help of the other teammates.
If students are interested in signing up for the Academic Team, the team meets on Mondays from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. in room number 817.
